Overview

Take this journey through the most picturesque part of the country- the central Balkans. Far from the hustle and bustle of the bigger highways, the road we are going to take is rarely used today. It used to connect our capital with the Black Sea coast, spreading almost 500km to the east and intersecting the country in two halves You will not only gain more knowledge on the Bulgarian history and culture by strolling the traditional town of Koprivshtitsa but also learn about the mastery behind Thracian Valley winemaking in one of the most exquisite wine cellars in the region. Timeless landscapes and breathtaking views will open for you as you embark on your last experience - a scenic open lift ride up the Balkan Mountains.

We thoroughly enjoyed a trip into the countryside from Sofia. Our guide, Gabby, was charming and spoke excellent English. This was really worth it and a highlight of our trip to Bulgaria.
